My living legend is my grandmother, Anna Masakova. She is entirely selfless and gave her life to her children, grandchildren and now, great grandchildren. When she was younger she pushed boundaries by graduating college and becoming a nurse. Her intellect and passion for caring for others took her far, but at the end of the day, she always put her family first. This is a legacy that touches me as I raise my own family.
My grandmother has a grace about her that I haven’t seen in others. She is soft spoken and let her family know she cared not with words, but actions. She taught me that one can impact others without being boisterous. She is impressive because she is as humble as she is beautiful and talented. To me, she is legendary.
